Merry Christmas

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, we know where at least two of the Rutland Ospreys will be on Christmas Day. The latest satellite data shows that 30(05) remains very settled on the coast of Senegal and, a few hundred miles south, her daghter, 5F(12) is wintering at Tanji in The Gambia.

The latest satellite data shows that 30(05) continues to favour the same section of Senegalese beach each day

But there’s a third Osprey that we ought to mention too. His name is Ozzie. Let the children of Edith Weston Primary School explain…

The satellite tracking data really helps to bring the Osprey’s amazing migration life and we are very grateful to the East Midlands Group of the Hawk and Owl Trust for donating £500 towards the ongoing costs of receiving the data. This is the third year that the group has supported our work – so a huge thank you Chairman Simon Dudhill and the rest of the group.
